April 04, 2016

LAS VEGAS, April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) (the "Company") today announced that its indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries, MGP Escrow Issuer, LLC (the "Issuer") and MGP Escrow Co-Issuer, Inc. (the "Co-Issuer" and, together with the Issuer, the "Issuers"), propose to offer $1.05 billion in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2024 (the "notes") in a private placement. The notes will be offered in connection with the formation of MGM Growth Properties LLC ("MGP"), a real estate investment trust ("REIT") that will be a subsidiary of the Company. Following the consummation of certain formation transactions, the Issuer will be merged with and into MGM Growth Properties Operating Partnership LP (the "OP"). 

The Issuers plan to use the net proceeds, together with the proceeds from other anticipated financings in connection with the formation transactions, to refinance indebtedness assumed by the OP from the Company in connection with the formation transactions, and to pay related fees and expenses.

The notes proposed to be offered will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to any U.S. persons absent registration under the Securities Act, or pursuant to an applicable exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.  The notes will be offered only to "qualified institutional buyers" under Rule 144A of the Securities Act or, outside the United States, to persons other than "U.S. persons" in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the notes, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of any notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.  The Company gives no assurance that the proposed offering can be completed on any terms.
